Well, yes.  Four small lines.  And why not, after all?  It makes life
easier for those of us not using a sub-editor ;-), and ensures
compliance with your guidelines.  I personnally dislike indenting with
tabs (gratuitous waste of screen space).  I'm willing to comply, but
don't make that an extra effort for me (and others).  Oh and don't
worry, I'll add those lines to the files when I first open them, so
you don't have to add them yourself.

  Well, that's no excuse, is it?

  Mh.  I see your point, but I still feel mine is valid.  Please make
that behaviour optional too :-)
